World Congress of Sociology, July 2010, Gothenburg: Move to Harmony
Massive change in sociology to global social harmony
Report on participation in the Congress
XVII World Congress of Sociology, International Sociological Association (ISA), was in Sweden, in a small (900,000 population) and green Gothenburg, 11-17 July 2010. Schedule of the 700 Congress Sessions as well as its other features the reader can be found at the ISA website: http://www.isa-sociology.org/congress2010. The Congress registered more than 5,000 participants from 104 countries that characterize its global scope and importance for understanding contemporary social trends.
I shall fix only on the three aspects of the Congress: 1. Its general ideological orientation, 2. My work in Congress and 3. Its significance for Global Harmony Association (GHA). I'll start in reverse order.
1. I will say at once: the Congress was very rich in new people and new ideas for the GHA. This is the main result. We found many new supporters of the GHA. Main new idea: to create on the GHA initiative a new Thematic Group (TG) in ISA to institutionalize "public sociology" of harmonious civilization started in the GHA over 5 years ago and presented in the GHA 20 projects and 4 books. Another idea: co-sociological study of the dynamics of spheral classes of the population in U.S., Russia, China and Sweden with the Swedish National Data Service. The Congress was attended besides me 5 members of the GHA: Bernard Scott of Britain, Reimon Bachika from Japan, Ananta Giri and Maitreyee Roy from India, as well as Kuseyn Isaev of Kyrgyzstan. All of them, in one way or another, helped in distributing our leaflets and books on Congress.
2. My main work at the Congress has been distributing leaflets and books "Harmonious Civilization”, which were the effective tool for acquaintance and intercourse with sociologists from different countries. I brought in Congress more than 50 books, of which I could sell only two copies, and the rest I gave sociological youth and elite, as well as sociologists from developing countries. (I noticed that at such congresses the books almost no one is buying for reasons of cost, availability of the Internet and their heaviness in transportation). I printed 500 flyers for the Congress in the English language (http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=436). Leaflets have been the most effective information tool that has attracted attention and was perceived by the public willingly. I gave them on the Presidential and other Sessions, as well as at the table with our books.
Here I acquainted with more than 40 sociologists who are interested in the book, and whom I have invited to join the GHA and its projects. Our book, along with a flyer, I gave to the ISA sociological elite: new President Michael Burawoy from the U.S.; former ISA Presidents: Michel Wieviorka, Piotr Sztompka, Alberto Martinelli and Margaret Archer; as well as such outstanding sociologists as Alan Touraine from France, Jeffrey Alexander, Craig Calhoun and Saskia Sassen from the USA; Li Peilin - Director of the Institute of Sociology of China; Eliza Rise of Brazil, the Nobel Laureate in Chemistry - a keynote speaker at the Congress - Professor Yuan Lee – President Emeritus of Academia Sinica in Taiwan; Manuel Castells from Spain; the former Minister for Foreign Affairs of Sweden, Jan Eliasson; and many others. Almost one in ten members of Congress received our leaflet with information about GHA and its program book. I have not seen on the Congress other similar books and leaflets. There were many but they were limited by various private and traditional aspects of society. Although, I do not exclude, that I have not seen anything: all the Congress information was impossible to reach. In addition, I participated in the Presidential and some other Sessions, and spoke at the RC51 Session with the paper "Global Education as Harmonious Education of Global Harmonious Civilization."
3. Now the ideological trends and achievements of the Congress. In order to reflex with them, I created on the GHA website "Peace from Harmony" the bilingual (Russian and English) seven new pages, united in a new special section:
International Sociological Association: Move towards Sociology of Global Harmony
On this page I published the ISA new TG Program and Statement drafts. These documents are virtually summarize the ideological crossing GHA and ISA at the Congress in Gothenburg. Under this section, I opened another six pages.
XVII World Congress of Sociology, Gothenburg, July 2010: Start to Understand Social Harmony
On this page I published my report. It is two rows of my vision of the Congress: the visual, which includes about 40 photographs, and mental, includes the most important ideas.
To this page adjoins a few personal pages of the ISA prominent sociologists and keynote speakers from Congress, with the publication of their brief biographical data, photos and papers (with comments), which they kindly sent me for publication and translation:
Michael Burawoy, ISA new President. Facing the Challenges of Global Sociology
The central idea of the ISA new President is global sociology as "my most ambitious project”, called to respond to the global challenges. This is a new and very important idea in the ISA strategy. If we acknowledge that humanity entered on the threshold of a harmonious civilization, then global sociology gain the appropriate quality. This new ISA strategy pushed me the idea of establishing in ISA the relevant Thematic Group: “Global Sociology of Harmonious civilization”, which found enough wide support in my discussions of this idea in Congress.
Yuan T. Lee, Nobel Prize on Chemistry. Energy, Environment and the Future of Mankind
Lee’s conclusion of deep analytical paper laid in the fact that humanity is living beyond its means, not by the resources that can provide the Earth. To solve this global problem can not any country but only all nations together as “one community”. In private conversation after the lecture I asked the question: "Do you agree that one community is a harmonious community or harmonious civilization?" At that Prof. Lee replied unequivocally: "I agree with this completely." This once again proves acceptability of harmonious civilization to the different scientists, peoples and cultures. We agree with the theme of the joint article: "One Earth, one Community and one Harmonious Civilization."
Margaret Archer, ISA President 1986-1990. The Current Crisis: Consequences of Neglecting the Four Key Principles of Catholic Social Doctrine
Margaret Archer, analyzing the sociology evolution since 1970s, reproached the sociologist with ignoring the theoretical researches of the major events of modernity: the Berlin Wall fall, the causes of economic and financial crises and so on (to it is necessary to add and start of nuclear zero in 2009). This allowed her to refer sociology to the "part of the contextual cause rather than its cure" (i.e. removed it from the interests of civil society) and to reproach it in "steady abandonment of ‘systematic sociology’ and the almost feverish production of ‘catch-phrase’ caricatures, each merely extrapolating one societal feature observable at the empirical level". We think that this abandonment and degradation of sociology are connected not only with degradation of industrial society, which it is served, but the absence of progressive systemic object, which appeared only in 2009 with birth of a harmonious civilization. Starting from Catholic Social Doctrine (which, in essence, is a harmonious one) Archer explores the "hostility" to human being nature the various individualistic models of industrial society, accelerating its crisis and devastating for the human. It is the models of ‘atomistic’, or ‘economic’, or ‘one-dimensional’, or ‘homo economicus’, or ‘homo sociologicus’ (or ‘Organization Man’), who “become subservient ‘dopes’ – extinguished as people and without the initiative”, who “do not need society”, “who contributes nothing to the ‘common good’ and to social solidarity” but involved in the fatal antagonism and is expressed as a lack of social structure. This de-humanization is expressed by “the contradictory formula: ”. The human rights in this models “can penalize racist acts and public abuse, it cannot legislate racial harmony let alone fraternity into being” and cannot serve to “the common good”. Archer, in her brilliant analytical research, unfolds that social theory together “with Marxism dead … and with Parsons in demise, died any serious concern with social integration” … has no “resources with which to conceive of a robust civil society”. “The sociological imagination during industrial capitalism generated no alternatives for the macro-conceptualization of late modernity” and lost "fraternity", "solidarity" and “subsidiarity” (necessary structural diversity). With the birth in 2009 of a harmonious civilization (“civilization of love” as was articulated by Benedict XVI in Archer’s quote) and its macro-conceptualization in the GHA book “Harmonious Civilization” (http://www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=379) these lost quality of sociological theorizing and imagination not only restored but also rise to a new level of global sociology of harmonious society and corresponding harmonious social thinking. This sociology has all the resources "to conceive of a robust civil society" within a deep structure of its social harmony and finding in it the lost fraternity and also new, harmonious, solidarity and subsidiarity. It is a real response to the challenges of global sociology of the latest modernity.
Michel Wieviorka. ISA President 2006-2010. Sociology on the move
Michel Wieviorka’s keynote speech was devoted to the move of sociology to new areas, its “massive change” and globalization, which included all regions of the world. Social globalization is accompanied by progress of individualization, which is opposed to globalization. Three questions remain open in sociology: general theory, scientific character of sociology and participation in public life. These questions, in my view, are solved in the perspective of sociological move to the new global domain: harmonious civilization.
From the GHA papers are published:
Leo Semashko. GHA President. Global Education as Harmonious Education of Global Harmonious Civilization
My paper was devoted to global harmonious education as the basic generating mechanism of a harmonious civilization, at least in four aspects. First, only it is capable to transform the spheral classes of the population from spontaneous in conscious actors of social harmony or harmonious civilization. Secondly, only it provides these classes with scientific knowledge of building this civilization at all levels: global, regional, national and local. Thirdly, only it creates the person adequate to this civilization: homo harmonicus. Fourthly, creating the harmonious (multidimensional instead of one-dimensional) human resource, which unique makes all resources, harmonious education harmonizes all other social resources through the person: information, including culture and religion; organisation, including finance (money) and democracy; and economy, including markets, property, competition, incomes and environment. Harmonious education provides conscious, peaceful and nonviolent evolution of a harmonious civilization.
This education is harmonious in four moments: on the purpose, content, way and executors-educators who will prepare by the corresponding Academies of Harmony, the initial projects of which are prepared in the GHA.
We should also mention the Chinese papers. Chinese scientists: Professor Li Peilin, Director of the Institute of Sociology, Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, and sociology Professor Hong Dayong, Renmin University, Beijing spoke about building a harmonious society in China as a new scientific and practical strategy of strengthening China’s sustainability. Of course, for them the idea of a harmonious civilization (society) was the closest and they talked about changing sociology in this direction.
Publication of the papers will continue.
In these reports reflects the two main ideological aspirations: to global sociology and to the sociology of social harmony and harmonious civilization. These actual trends find the best scientific and practical connection, from my point of view, in creation of the ISA new Thematic Group: Global Sociology of Harmonious Civilization. Its initial Program and Statement were published:
These documents, as well as my report and the papers with the comments, are offered for discussion by the ISA and GHA members.
August 22, 2010
June 21, 2010: First Global Harmony Day of Harmonious Civilization
June 21, 2010: First Global Harmony Day of Harmonious Civilization
Dear Creators of Harmonious Civilization:
GHA Message for June 21, 2010 on Global Harmony Day in the Harmonious Era Calendar is devoted to the following two most momentous events:
1. 2010 as the first year of the Harmonious Civilization and
2. Harmonious thinking of a new civilization which is presented in details in the GHA program book “Harmonious Civilization” http://www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=379.
2010 as the first year of the Harmonious Civilization:
For more than 5 years, GHA has been intently watching the new historical trend of global harmonization which may be traced back to 1947. This time we collected approximately 65 instances of global harmony in the different spheres and countries: http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=382. Strengthening of this tendency and accumulation of the facts has established two critical points: a) 1990s witnessed the socialist camp collapse, which replaced the past historical alternative "capitalism-socialism" within industrialism by the new historical alternative "industrialism-harmonism" (or “industrial civilization – harmonious civilization”), and b) 2009 marked the birth of a harmonious civilization connected with two new key historic initiatives: 1) The beginning of nuclear disarmament, which is possible only in new Harmonious Civilization, instead of an industrial militaristic civilization, and 2) 2009 also marked the creation of the scientific theory of a harmonious civilization, which provides a conscious, peaceful and nonviolent development for this civilization.
These historical events have been strengthened by the two simultaneously occurring facts in this direction: 1) Since 1992, The European Union (a union of approximately 30 countries with a population of 500 million) was established on the harmony principle ‘Unity in diversity,’ and 2) Since 2006, China (with a population almost a quarter of the total humanity) is consciously building a harmonious society.
Therefore, we propose that June 21, 2010 is the First Global Harmony Day of the Harmonious Civilization. It is a conscious day of a conscious civilization. This is unprecedented event in history when the new civilization realizes itself since the first year. This day is not merely a simple symbol of a new era marked by conscious beginning of a new, harmonious, mentality of humankind, but the Age of Harmonious Enlightenment and the conscious Harmony Renaissance. It is absolutely unimportant that this consciousness is observed only within small international community of GHA. It is important, however that it is observed. And with distribution of harmonious enlightenment and education, its expansion will not keep waiting for long.
Harmonious thinking of a new civilization:
Harmonious Enlightenment, just as any thought, begins with the alphabet, language and thinking of harmony. Enlightenment is a transition from ignorance to knowledge, from one level of knowledge to another, essentially new level. Most of us are competent in the alphabet and language of industrialism. We know the core concepts of industrial thinking which are identical with disharmony. The language of industrial civilization teaches us to achieve peace from war. Engagement of the military to find peace results in the daily preparation for a new war for national and any private interests. Its motivation is greed and profit by the military industry and arrogance of the subscribing democracies and dictatorships. The war spread by such precedence may lead to involvement by all nations, simply because of a lack of alternative for the world growing in a culture of violence. This culture breeds disharmonious reading and writing, which creates disharmonious man. There are several big and small states, which own the weapons of mass destruction with their annual military expense growing faster than that of other necessities. The ultimate end of this civilization is a ‘universal genocide’ (Ernesto Kahan and Taki Yuriko) in a global nuclear or other fire. The 21st century genocide of billions will be the apotheosis of an industrial civilization and its thinking.
Only the alternative trend of global harmony and the newborn harmonious civilization can overcome the culture of violence and its apotheosis. To develop harmonious thinking, we should master the alphabet and harmony language, both at individual level and social level. Instead of schools and academies which prepare for violence, we should create schools and academies of global harmony. Such schools will prepare everyone with its alphabet, language, concepts and thinking. The language of global harmony will delineate spheral classes of population leading to harmonious peace (peace from harmony). It priority is children raised in harmonious civilization to cultivate harmonious democracy. only harmonious democracy can give rise to a culture of harmony by teaching harmonious education in developing a harmonious person. This will lead to prosperity of all people and all nations – all of them identical in harmony, truth, justice and humanism. All of the above mentioned building blocks and notions are equally important. Each of them is a science. Together they make harmonious thinking, which is presented for the first time in the GHA 20 projects and four collective books in 5 years.
The Global Harmony Day 2010 symbolizes the conscious beginning of universal harmonious enlightenment and culture of harmonious thinking replacing a culture of military-industrial thinking, which can only assure universal genocide. These are two philosophies, two persons, two ways of life, thinking and behavior of two civilizations; when one dies and the other is born only.
GHA congratulates its members and all people of the world on June 21, 2010

Harmonious Education: Today’s Top Priority for Children
GHA Message on Protection and Children’s Priority Day, June 1, 2010
Dear parents, teachers, and grandparents:
Today, on June 1st, 2010 The Global Harmony Association (GHA) is happy to congratulate you on the Protection and Children’s Priority Day on the GHA Harmonious Era Calendar (since 2005). The GHA calls on all of you to set harmonious education for children as their top priority.
Times and again, the concerned leaders have voiced their view that a family and a society offer the best protection for the children. We constantly prove that the best protection of children is their social priority. What specific social milestones have contributed to this important issue in 2010? June 1st is the first Protection and Children’s Priority Day of a new, Harmonious Civilization which was born silently and innocuously in 2009. Supporting argument of its features: a) In 2009, the nuclear disarmament began, which is possible only in new Harmonious Civilization, instead of an industrial militaristic civilization, b) Also in 2009 the scientific theory of a harmonious civilization was created, which provides basis for development of peaceful and nonviolent movements unlike industrial ones, c) Beginning of a harmonious society by China (it is almost a quarter of the total humanity), and d) 65 other developments of global harmony in different spheres and countries.
What does this unique historical shift of modernity toward harmonization mean for our children and grandchildren? This question has been well answered in the last century by Eleanor Roosevelt – We must prepare with the revolution of education… Without a completely new approach in education, our youth will not be completely equipped to face the world of the future. The harmonious civilization is born. Are our children ready for it? Are we ready for it? The answer is a categorical “No.” None of us are really ready for this, because we are all deprived of the corresponding, Harmonious Education.
All of us are ignorant in harmony, individually and socially. We do not know harmony language. We do not know even harmony alphabet. Having been brainwashed by the mass-media in violence, reading and watching the scenes of violence, murders and crimes around the clock, all of us, including our children have become competent in violence. Our society is one continuous academy of disharmony. Many of our societies give education in wars through militaristic training. Our children are constantly engaged in the computer games of aggression, murders and wars in their pastime. Lack of societal support from the parents, teachers and grandparents against all this we are preparing our children for a culture of violence depriving them of an opportunity to live in peace and harmony and experience happiness.
Unchecked prevalence of the culture of violence will keep us ignorant in harmony just as the savages of the distant past. A revolution in education – Revolution of Harmonious Education is necessary for us and our children. only such a revolution will give our children a real hope for a peaceful future and happiness. Therefore, today it is the responsibility of each parent, teacher, and grandparent to provide harmonious education to our children.
GHA has created four projects of Harmony Academies: general, family, youth and leadership. They are published in our books and on the site:
GHA calls parents and teachers all over the world to get acquainted with these projects and use them in families, schools and all educational and training institutions.
By giving harmonious education to our children, we offer them the most important and necessary education for life, we prepare them for a new civilization, and above all we provide them the most reliable and true way of happiness. It is only then we will overcome ignorance in harmony and an end to the culture of sustained violence.
Only then we will open for them the Age of Harmonious Enlightenment and Harmonious Peace. only then our children and grandchildren will be better than us. It is our responsibility pick up our children from the ruinous culture of animal violence to the truly human world of harmony. We must take the first step from ignorance to enlightenment in harmony.
Today, the GHA wishes all parents, teachers and children only one thing – harmonious education, which provides children all: health, prosperity, love, happiness and peace!

AHL Conception and President approval, May 22, 2010
Dear GHA members,
I like to inform a result: the Academy of Harmonious Leadership (AHL) Conception and President are approved by GHA.
I received more than 40 responses in which there were YES to AHL President and only 4 GHA members (two from Russia and two foreign) refrained from support of AHL Conception. I not received any response with NO to the AHL Concept or President. I warmly thank all GHA members for support of the new 20th GHA Project. In some responses concrete remarks and offers contained. on their basis I brought about 15 editorial amendments and additions in the Conception text. However, its contents not changed. Therefore I do not send its text to you. However, who wishes to read its final variant, you can do it on the site where it is published: http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=429
I will remind that the English text will be edited by the carrier of English language in June-August. As our known English editors cannot or for a long time are absent, I invite English-speaking members, especially from youth to help to GHA with editing of 14 pages (without modules) in AHL Conception. It will be your great contribution which GHA will highly appreciate. Please, let me know the names of the GHA new editors.
In the Conception only one paragraph was essentially changed: it is the AHL list of experts-guides. Therefore I publish it below and I ask to inform me on the noticed errors and blanks. The general number of experts makes today 18 persons from 10 countries and the number of the AHL project makes supporters 14 persons. The AHL Vice-presidents will be approved, as you know, on May 31st.
For the summer months (June, July and August) I declare a vacation in GHA and I wish all to have the well rest on a nature, to visit various conferences, to be engaged in the health, children and grandchildren. I will be engaged in it too, I will periodically leave the city and to come back. But I am intended something and to make: to carry on negotiations with some heads, to write the ethical memorandum of Harmony for GHA and AHL, to involve in working out of Tetramathematics the new experts as the mathematics of a harmonious civilization is very powerful tool of its building and sharply it is required to AHL. As required I will sometimes inform you on it, not abusing your time and attention. Active work will begin in September with detailed personal discussion of each module of AHL.
But in the summer we should find new forces for our new practical work. Who will search the entertainments on Internet, please, do not forget about a harmony film library on our site: http://www.peacefromharmony.org/? cat=en_c&key=252. It contains now more than 40 films devoted to the most different harmony: children, women, Earth, ocean, birds, animal, architecture, mathematics, flowers, space, Moon, music, humour, words, painting, different countries: China, Russia, France, Japan, Malta, Greece, Egypt, Milan, Petersburg etc. Therefore it will please each of you. I sincerely thank those from you who have sent me these remarkable films and also our web designer Ivan Ivanov who has created this great film library of harmony.
I wish all the pleasant rest, health and joy in life and Internet.
Best harmony wishes,
May 1: Global Love Day. Congratulations and New philosophy of love from harmony in a new civilization
TO: The Love Foundation (http://www.thelovefoundation.com/),
TO: Harold Becker, President
The Global Harmony Association (GHA) is happy to congratulate you and your remarkable The Love Foundation (TLF) and also all GHA members and friends on Global Love Day! You established it seven years ago and you included it in the GHA Harmonious Era Calendar, which has been published in 2006 in 12 languages of the world by the separate book and on our website “Peace from Harmony”: http://www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=ru_c&key=190.
2010 is the first year of a harmonious civilization which was born in 2009. Therefore, our Calendar came into operation: Harmonious Era has begun. Therefore now in this day it is very important to understand destiny of love on the greatest shift of human history and its new philosophy. Today's Love Day is the first in Harmonious Era. Certainly, it is only the beginning and a weak sprout of a new epoch. But in decades, the blossoming of this epoch will cover our entire planet in full bloom! Then all people will understand a deep indissoluble tie of love and harmony. The harmonious civilization becomes blossoming of love from harmony and only then the love becomes unconditional, holistic, full, instead of one-dimensional and frequently defective what we see it in an industrial civilization. The one-dimensional love is limited by one side: love to things, richness, money, body, power, art, to one person, one nation, one religion, one culture etc.
Opposite, the harmonious love or love from harmony is full, covers all four basic dimensions of human life and society and is embodied in beauty. Why we love beauty and we do not love the hideous? Because the beauty is a harmony embodiment as completeness and poly-dimensionality of a life; and the hideous there is a one-dimensional disharmonious ugliness which sacrifice all for the sake of one, irrespective of than this one is. “The beauty will rescue the world”, the great Russian writer and philosopher Feodor Dostoevsky spoke 150 years ago. The beauty is harmony. Beauty is it that all people love. The beauty is love. Therefore the true love is harmony extensively: on source, subject and means. only in this case the love becomes full, beautiful and unconditional. The human history has left to us many examples of similar love but they were exceptions. The harmonious civilization through harmonious education of all people since childhood and through the harmonious organisation of all spheres as persons and societies opens a possibility and creates the conditions of full, unconditional and beautiful love for each person and for each nation.
These conditions are scientifically unfolded for the first time, that is why it is far not perfect, but for the first time, in the GHA book “Harmonious Civilization”(http://www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=379), co-authors of which are many members of your remarkable TLF. Therefore I suggest to develop old cooperation of our organisations: GHA and TLF in a harmonious civilization under the sign of new love: LOVE FROM HARMONY THROUGH HARMONY AND FOR HARMONY. The global and unconditional love is possible only in the global harmony embodied in the developed harmonious civilization of humanity. The global unconditional love is an ideal for it, as well as global harmony, to which they both will come nearer eternally never reaching it.
Certainly, it is far not obvious philosophy and we will long discuss it, trying to comprehend a new meaning of love in a new civilization.
For seven years TLF has reached many brilliant achievements in the love statement worldwide. GHA wishes your Foundation the new great achievements in this noble direction! You can hope on GHA as trustworthy alien. You and TLF are presented on our site by special page in English and Russian languages: (http://www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=100,
http://www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=ru_c&key=131), and also a banner on its main page. Let me present to all our friends the bunch (below) in a sign of our love.
With love from harmony,
Dr. Leo Semashko,
FYI: GHA Letters to Barack Obama, Hilary Clinton, Denis Kucinich and the American physicists
Dear friends from harmony,
I am glad to send you the GHA four letters which have been kindly sent by GHA-USA President Dr. Laj Utreja to Barack Obama, Hilary Clinton, Denis Kucinich and the American physicists who have proved necessity of nuclear zero. Laj made also the basic work on drawing up and editing of these letters. I express sincere gratitude to Laj for his great contribution to realization of the GHA projects.
Similar letters of GHA with the invitation to head political Club-2009 in support of a harmonious civilization have been directed by Dr. Tholana Chacravarthi to a member of India Parliament Rahul Gandhi; Mr Jean Basabose from Ruanda to the former leader of the United Nations to Dr. Kofi Anan; Dr. Steve Rajan to the Prime-minister of Malaysia. I also express sincere gratitude to you for your great contribution to realization of the GHA projects.
All letters have been sent together with GHA book “Harmonious Civilization” which is now at leaders of the leading countries, at many universities and the largest libraries of the world: USA Congress, Russia, Britain, France, China, India, Rome, Vatican, Malaysia and other countries.
These letters are published on GHA website: http://peacefromharmony.org/? cat=en_c&key=409.
Dr. Leo Semashko,
Russia and USA: First Practical Step to Nuclear Zero on a Way of Harmonious Civilization. 08/04/10
The Global Harmony Association (GHA) is happy to congratulate the members and all our friends with the first practical step of Russia and USA to nuclear zero on a way of the harmonious civilization which have reckoned from 2009.
US and Russia Presidents signed today in Prague the Treaty on nuclear reduction on 30 %, calculated on 7 years, that allows to predict achievement of nuclear zero in 20 years, and taking into account history acceleration – in 15-10 years. It is the first stage of a harmonious civilization which goes on change of an industrial civilization and which is capable only to create instead of to destroy the nuclear weapon. only new, harmonious, civilization is capable to destroy it.
Therefore, the way of nuclear zero is the best proof of that the humanity entered a new civilization irrevocably! It is the new global modernity which will steadily develop and get stronger!!! It is the new reality which is cultivated intuitively by millions people and which is cultivated by the GHA knowingly in its projects of global harmony. We understand our belonging to this great world shift and we promote it actively! We congratulate each other and our friends with it!
Peace from Harmony!
Dr. Leo Semashko,
Harmony as a new, unknown, source of billions. I call you to study to earn money from harmony and for harmony!!! March 28, 2010
Dear GHA members, friends,
I received many congratulations and warm words from you in connection with my interview about a harmonious civilization in “St-Petersburg News” from March 23: http://www.spbvedomosti.ru/article.htm?id=10265308@SV_Articles. Of them I quote some in reduction below and I published them at the address: http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=407. Thank you very much for your congratulations which all GHA members should share.
Scientific comprehension of a harmonious civilization is our general achievement. From us now depends, that this scientific understanding, for the first time in the world presented in our book “Harmonious Civilization” (http://www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=379), became a property as it is possible more numbers of people through translation of this book and its parts, through its mass publication as manual for schools and universities of the world, through its reviews, through education, including individual which becomes my priority.
On this book (but not only), I created the unique elitist (for beginning) program for integrated harmonious training of the ambitious young men of 16-25 years to the higher posts in any state and to leadership in the new branches of world business constructed on harmony. These new branches will make their leaders by billionaires OF harmony and FOR harmony and to the world will bring justice, everlasting peace and happiness. In our book we have shown on the examples, that harmony is a new, unknown source of billions surpassing all oil, diamond, military and other industrial billions. Harmony is universal, it is necessary to all and always, on it stays a life, and therefore it is a inexhaustible spring of billions, as the sun. Who will understand it the first, that the first will receive billions from it. With these branches the new economy will begin – ECONOMY of HARMONY or ECONOMY of the HARMONIOUS CIVILIZATION. only this economy is just and true, authentically scientific and authentically human as only it provides the COMMON GOOD and HARMONIOUS PROFIT from all social and natural resources to ALL people of the Earth and EVERYONE!!! For harmonious economy we created the theory of harmonious money as the new reserve currency HARMON guaranteeing harmonious profit each. The project of this global currency is published in our book (http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=390). Not money is an evil but their mercenary distribution and their absolutization. Money can serve not only to evil but also to good, not only to disharmony (to wars, violence, etc.), but also to harmony. It waits them in a harmonious civilization. Money is universal as harmony; therefore they should and can serve to all people of the Earth, instead of a small part. It is a new philosophy of harmonious money for the new harmonious civilization which were born in 2009 as the GHA defined.
But billions from harmony, unlike industrial billions, will serve not to wars and corporations but to social and individual harmony of ALL PEOPLE of the WORLD that is identical to an everlasting peace, love, happiness, prosperity and justice on the Earth.
Certainly, today still nobody is able to extract billions from harmony. (The industrial civilization learnt to extract them only from disharmony). The new young and ambitious professionals with the new integrated harmonious scientific thinking unfolded in the GHA books are for this purpose necessary first of all. Therefore only in GHA the corresponding programs of training/education, both individual, and public through the Harmony Academies have been created.
I pay attention of the GHA members to this our unique potential and I call you in every possible way to develop or in every possible way to promote to its development in your countries. I am ready to share my elitist program with those GHA members who are ready to cooperate together with me in its realization in your countries, since the publication in the newspapers and on the websites of your countries of the following announcement:
I call you to study to earn money from harmony and for harmony!!!

Website “Peace from Harmony” for Harmonious Civilization: Updating Finish. February 25, 2010
Dear harmony friends,
I am happy to inform you, that we with our web designer Ivan Ivanov finished updating of the Main page of our site “Peace from Harmony” (http://www.peacefromharmony.org/) which is of the Global Harmony Association (GHA) information base. I express sincere gratitude to Ivan for his colossal and qualitative work on the site updating.
Our site became a unique information portal for conscious development of the harmonious civilization (which were born in 2009), that makes GHA Mission. Therefore it became a powerful information resource for the GHA independent financing (see below).
We created the following 12 new pages of the site Main menu:
About Us / History / Harmony Globalization / Harmony Science / Harmony Sphere Classes / Harmonious Democracy and State / Harmony: Beyond Corruption / Harmonious Civilization / Harmonious Education / Nuclear Zero: Harmony / Harmony Currency / Harmony Persons.
Now the Main menu emphasizes the major innovative aspects of our scientific-theoretical vision of a harmonious civilization and also its key practical projects of GHA.
Besides, the page “Mission” is essentially updated; and section “Harmony Films” replenished with the brilliant pictures of harmony of nature, countries (especially China, which the first begun the conscious building a harmonious society with 2006 and to pave the own way from socialism to a harmonious civilization) and people from all world which you sent. The site structure on a vertical became bilingual, and across – multilingual, connected on the centre from above the general book of harmony which we write, and the GHA united emblem from below. We found the site epigraph in genius on philosophy poetic lines:
Harmony nectar is in everyone,
Who is only born or has lived long,
And to understand to us is very important,
In harmony God created the World!
We invite you attentively to look the new pages and to state your remarks.
Certainly, works with site modernization will proceed. Translation of the site new pages, first of all Mission, on 14 languages is a priority. Within 1-2 weeks I will send to our translators the small texts of Mission and some other pages for this purpose.
What became our site for 5 years and what its importance for GHA development in the future?
Our site is the first in the Internet and the only thing in the world on the following two unique signs:
- On a harmony science. Within 5 years we lifted Tetrasociology, as the harmony theory, on our site on level of a science of social/global harmony and developed on its basis essentially new Tetranet Harmonious thinking. We proved their efficiency in 19 the GHA collective projects responding to the global challenges of humanity. Similar analogues in the world do not exist, though many scientists and groups move in the same direction of harmony. The human history did not know still a social science of harmony and harmonious four-dimensional thinking, except GHA and its site. It makes our main pride, honour and contribution to radical change of human history, to its transformation from spontaneous and violent (animal) in conscious (scientific) and consequently nonviolent (truly human, harmonious) history. This contribution synthesizes in itself practically all basic harmonious ideas of the past and the present from all areas of knowledge and world cultures. Our site is a beehive which collects nectar of harmony from all world and it is open to any new ideas of harmony always. We do not compete with them but we synthesize them in a science of social harmony and we attach to them scientific significance. These can explain constantly raising public attention to our site: if for the first 4 years the number of its visiting made about 1 million, that only for one last year it made about 700 thousand.
- On collectivity of a harmony science. We proved our five years' experience, that the social science can be only harmonious and only in the harmonious society/civilization, beginning with a small harmonious international community what is GHA uniting more 350 members from 48 countries of the world. The site unites hundreds the brilliant and usual minds devoted to global harmony and a harmonious civilization. 87 from them, i.e. almost every fourth, have the personal page on our site and is presented in the Main menu new section: “Harmony Persons”. Any person separately, without others, alone, never could create neither a global science of social harmony, nor its site and GHA. They are only the COMMON achievement and only the COLLECTIVE merit. onLY! The harmonious global contribution can be only joint, i.e. harmonious on a way and the actor. Certainly, the individual contribution of everyone to the common achievement was a different but only their synthesis and unity provided the GHA colossal result and its site. It is as in an old Russian tale about the turnip which could pull out onLY the general, but different, efforts of the grandfather, the grandma, the grand daughter, the doggy, the cat and the smallest mouse. This tale expresses Russian culture of harmony and is similar to similar tales in many other cultures. GHA also, only together, could pull out “the turnip” of scientific comprehension of a harmonious civilization and present it on the site, in 4 books and 19 projects. Therefore the GHA each member can be proud of our general result in which there is also its share without which would be no this result. We can tell that our site embodies Durkheim’s “collective consciousness” and solidarity to the full.
Our site became a powerful information resource for GHA financing on the following channels (other channels are possible, except listed):
- Club-2009: the large political figures united in it, cannot do without financing and our site, and GHA.
- Grants of the different foundations and organisations for financing, first of all, youth Academy of Harmony on the information basis of the site in a minimum for 2-4 weeks.
- Reprinting “Harmonious Civilization” book, published on the site, in the mass edition with updating of this book.
- Use of our site for preparation of the mass edition of the textbook on Tetrasociology for schools and universities of the world.
- Use of our site as manual for schools, universities and house harmonious training, including individual teaching.
I am personally ready now to the following practical actions in this direction:
1. To read at any university of the world on the basis of our site as manual the following lecture courses in length of 40-120 class periods during 1 – 5 months:
- Tetranet Harmonious Thinking of the 21st century
- Harmonious civilization of the 21st century
- Harmony Globalisation
- Harmony Philosophy
- Science of Social Harmony
- Science of Individual Harmony
- Harmonious (Sphere) Management
- Culture of Harmonious Peace and etc.
The GHA many members could prepare similar lecture courses on an information basis of our site also.
2. To prepare a custom-made course of lectures on harmony for any university practically on any theme of any social science within 1-3 months with work advancing.
3. To act in a role of the house teacher for preparation of the ambitious young (age 17-23) person from an ambitious family as future (in 10-20 years) President for harmonization of any country of the world. I will be very grateful to everyone who can acquaint me with a similar family. Many GHA members also could seize this unique service on the basis of our site.
Concluding, it is possible to tell, that our site opens the essentially new theoretical and practical prospects and for GHA as a whole, and its each member, arming everyone a unique information resource.
Best harmony wishes,
Dr. Leo Semashko,
